I found the following in my files. I’m not sure if I wrote it or found it in a source that I’ve long forgotten.
In Matthew 1:20-21, the angel tells Joseph that his fiancé, Mary, will have a son with a divine origin. “She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
Savior is Jesus’ special office. He saves people from the guilt of sin, by washing them in his own atoning blood. Jesus saves us from the penalty of sin, by forgiving our sins. He saves people from the dominion of sin, by putting in their hearts the Holy Spirit who sanctifies us. Jesus saves us from the presence of sin, when he takes us out of this world to rest in him. He will save us from all the consequences of sin, when he gives us a glorious body at the last day.
Jesus saves us from sin for evermore. This is salvation.
